A Call From My September Mailing At Last

Scott Costello All, Blog, Probate Investing 5 Comments

With every call I get I know I’m getting closer and closer to my first deal.  I had pretty much given up on getting any immediate calls from my September mailing.  I usually get a quick 3 to 4 calls and then a few trickle in during the following weeks.  All you can do is just make sure you send out the follow up right? I’m not setting up anything big, just throwing out an example for those people who …

Probate Monday: Mid Month Slow Down

Scott Costello All, Probate Investing 3 Comments

Before I get started, I want to wish my beautiful bride a very happy 30th birthday today.  She is the love of my life and with out a doubt my best friend as well.  Can’t beat that combo!  In our family we like to celebrate birthdays over a week period, not just on the date itself. We get together with family, have a party with friends and do things throughout the week to make it a really special time. With …

So here is …

How was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was pretty busy with family stuff but I managed to work in a few REI activities as well.  My father had back surgery to fix a herniated disc last week so I got a bit side tracked and did not realize I hadn’t updated my blog the entire week.   Hopefully everyone else was too busy getting deals to noticed. Last week I set three goals which are designed to get me closer to my first …

Probate Monday: Persistence

As a software developer for the past 9 years I’ve learned some valuable lessons about myself and what it takes to accomplish what I’ve set out to do.  Many times over the years I’ve had to figure out complicated programming tools, languages and specifications in order to achieve the final product.  For me a program that I had to struggling to make, curse at because it just wouldn’t work and want to just delete out of pure frustration is the …
